 ANNUITY: The receipt of payments at regular intervals from a established fund. Annuities are commonly used for insurance and retirement programs. It works in this way: A fund, which can be established either through a one-time sum of money or a series of payments, is exhausted over time with fixed, periodic payments. The amount of each payment depends on the interest accrued on the outstanding balance in the fund, and the length of time scheduled to exhaust the fund. For example, if your pension plan is based on an annuity that begins payments at the age of 65, then the size of the payments depends on whether you expect to live 5, 10, 15, or more years and set up payments accordingly. It's very similar to amortization, but in the reverse direction.

 Lesson 5: Demand | Unit 3: Demand Curve Page: 9 of 20

 Topic: Schedule <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

This table is a demand schedule presenting the relationship between demand price and quantity demanded.

Assumptions:

• Ceteris paribus factors do not change.
• Data is for a specific time period.
Observations:
• First, higher prices go with lower quantities demanded-the law of demand.
• Second, the prices and quantities are maximum values.
• Third, demand is the whole set of price/quantity pair numbers. Quantity demanded is any single number at the specified price.
• By the way, these numbers are hypothetical.

POINT ELASTICITY

The relative responsiveness of a change in one variable (call it B) to an infinitesimally small change in another variable (call it A). The notion of point elasticity typically comes into play when discussing the elasticity at a specific point on a curve.
